Accessibility is important to us and we’ve taken it into account while planning this event. This location is wheelchair accessible and is in a high-traffic area for both pedestrians and cars and can get noisy. For planting projects, you may need to bend, stoop or kneel on the ground and use a small hand tool. For downtown cleanup projects, you may be using a litter grabber and other tools and lifting up to 10 pounds. There will be a space in the RSVP form for you to let us know if there are any accessibility needs you have so that we can do our best to find a volunteer role that will work for you.

Thank you to our partners, VDA and Parks Foundation!
